    Check out "downrigger release clip" on google. I have done some testing in our front lawn to carry my wife's bait and bobber out much farther then she can cast. It worked great. A quick jerk on the line released the bait and bober. You can get them in different release strength. Good luck.

    Use a bow tie knot (like how you tight your shoes). Depending on how loose you make it -

    Otherwise maybe a twisty tie that you'd get on a bag of bread or something. A plastic wire clip?

    Many different options out there that can be found around your home. Just gotta be creative!
